Remember drinking milk or soda pop from a paper straw? This box of 100 Sweetheart Mother Goose straws appears to be almost full with perhaps just a few missing. The straws are thin pastel colored and you can see the straws through the cellophane window on the front. On the front are a few lines of Little Tommy Tucker Sings for His Supper with graphics to depict the story. On the back the nursery rhyme is Mistress Mary, Quite Contrary with colored flowers each suggesting a use for these straws. These were made by the Coast Maid Paper Products Company Div. of Maryland Cup Corp. of Los Angeles probably in the 1950's. It has an original price sticker from Grand Central on the top flap but the price was never printed.
The box measures about 8 ¾” long by 3 5/8" wide by 7/8” deep and is in very nice condition minor crease and edge wear. The top flap has a tear and there is a spot on the top front corner that might be a stain from a price sticker. The original cellophane window is intact. The straws measure about 8 ½” long.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
